Join us at our office (map) on Wednesday, November 9th for a brief introduction, training and Q&A session! The workshop will go from 4:00 to 5:00 PM. Please contact Suzanne to RSVP:
(503) 935-5370.

Please read over the 2017 PIC Guidelines for detailed information about who we fund and what we fund, along with general instructions. Once you have created an account on ZoomGrants, you will have access to a Tutorial in the “Library” that provides a step-by-step guide to filling out the application and submission. Past grants awarded and other PIC-related documents can be found here.

We hope you will find ZoomGrants easy to use and we are here to help if you have any questions. Please contact our Grants Program Manager, Suzanne Easton: or (503) 935-5370.
